Classic car auctions are among the greatest classic car events in the world, with the opportunity to see up close and in detail some really rare and valuable vehicles and the 2018 auction was a supremely successful event. More than 2,600 cars changed hands, and US $248 million has been spent to purchase them. Classic cars, classic trucks, performance cars and rarities thrilled enthusiast and turned heads. There were the most notable car brands such as Porsche, Lamborghini and Ferrari.
The 275 GTB Speciale Coupe is the most expensive steel-bodied 275 GTB which was sold. It’s one of only four built from the legendary Pininfarina and the sole surviving model.
Different to the regular 275 GTB and incorporates additional features. The car has a much more luxurious interior, and the exterior has no port window on the driver’s side. A rear diffuser has been added to improve aerodynamics, and the functioning of the coupe is superior to the conventional models. The smaller front fenders and more notable indicators fit perfectly to the redesigned front grill. The interior has high-grain leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and other comfort-enhancing capabilities. The 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB Speciale Coupe is fitted with an ultra-powerful 3.3-litre V12 engine which could produce 265bhp. The vehicle is rear wheel drive and has a 5-speed manual transaxle gearbox transmission that’s smooth and comfortable to use.
A breed that’s passing into extinction. They do not make sports cars like this anymore, but this the one is the only survivor, and in more than 50 years since she first took to the roads, she is still going strong and turning heads in respect with beauty from a bygone age.
